So I was bored and went back to read the original WoW thread on this forum. WoW was my first MMO (probably like most people) and reading that thread bought back many fond memories. With at least 4 new MMO's coming out soon (two later rather then sooner) this got me thinking. I have played most popular MMO's but none of them hooked me like WoW did back in 2004. It just blew me away, everything about it. Even the servers being borked for the first 2 months didn't really matter because the game was so good it outshadowed those problems. No game has come to close to impressing me as much as the early days of WoW. Warhammer came close (I was a huge warhammer fan though) until max level. Every other game has just been "meh, done this before." ToR looks like it may be another one of those games even though I really don't want it to. GW2 seems better but I have concerns it may be like Warhammer was where the journey is fun but the destination is just terrible. I remember little about War, Aion, Rift, DDO etc however I remember plenty of things that happened in WoW during the first few months. But was WoW really that good? Is it just the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia making it seem to be better then it was?
